Description

Description

In many cases, the bill of materials is the most important part of your drawings when it comes to communicating within and outside your corporation. This class will examine the power of the bill of materials (BOM) produced by Autodesk Inventor software. We will explore the interface and examine how the BOM is built and maintained. We will explain the 2 BOM types as well as how the BOM structure impacts what you see in both the assembly BOM and the drawing parts list. We will show you how to use quantity and part number merging to build cut lists and other types of parts lists. Finally, we will explore how the bill of materials can be exported to a neutral format and used in other systems and see how the Inventor bill of materials compares to an item master created using Autodesk® Vault Professional software.
